A Description Of Cork

Cork city, the second City of the Republic of Ireland, has a population of 140,000 people, Like Venice, Cork City is built upon the waters, and City Centre is built on an island in the River Lee just upstream of Cork Harbour. The two channels of the River Lee which embraces the City centre are spanned by no less than sixteen bridges and this gives the City a distinctive Continental air. However it is often said of Cork City that it has all the amenities of a large City, but still retains its pleasant atmosphere, and extreme friendliness, which you will experience on your visit to the City.
